Bringloid was the primary of the Bringloid system. The star was located in the Ficus sector. This star was located less than 90 light years from Sol.
The star entered a period of severe flare activity in 2365, which forced the Bringloid V colony to be moved to the Mariposa colony. (TNG: "Up The Long Ladder"; ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")
